Title:
Train Station
Town:
Morristown
County:
Lamoille
State:
Vermont
Date:
1906
Description:
In the fall of 1872, the original station was built to welcome the Portland and Ogdensburg Railroad - Vermont Division from St. Johnsbury, which began serving the area on December 31, 1872. Within five years, the line was complete to Swanton and people were able to travel from Portland to Lake Champlain. New connections were created with the “Atlantic” and “Pacific” Express, and by 1884, a 24'x55' addition, named the Depot Restaurant was erected. In the early 1930's as the passenger service began to decline on the St. J and LC, the Depot Restaurant closed. Passenger service was discontinued on April 28, 1956, but the line remained a viable option for freight. Flood damage to the line and a declining interest in rail service led to the final train running through Lamoille County in November 1994. This image shows a steamlocomotive and passenger cars at a railroad station. Several people are on the platform. The train depot building is on the right of the image. The caption at the bottom of the photo reads: 10 Railroad Street, Morrisville, VT

Vermont
Date:

Description:
Over the years, the train station housed a number of restaurants. In the 1980's, the Loati family created the landmark known as the Station Restaurant, which closed in 1989. The building was occupied by the Oriental Station restaurant in the 1990's that closed due to fire. In 2005, the Benson family moved their restaurant, Melben's, into the Station.
